Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Sample at brewery 2/27/10 Pours a cloudy brown with a small tan head. Aroma of banana and clove. Taste a little sour, hops, and slight banana. Not may hefe characteristics. This medium bodied brew was not great.

Lightly sweet and fruity nose with banana, peach and bread dough. The flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter with herbs, floral hops, bread, pears and dark fruits. Medium body is soft with moderate carbonation.

sleestak (226) - Williamston, Michigan, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Pint at the pub. Pours ruddy and cloudy with a soft, fast-fading head. Aroma was malty, but lacked the yeast esters typical of the style. Flavor was a huge surprise - light caramel and roasted nuts with huge tartness. Almost tasted like a berliner weiss. Very light body and decent carbonation. Unlike any dunkel I’ve ever tried, but enjoyable.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - APR 20, 2009
Aroma of soft dark malting,of the biscuity German variety,taste was also dark slightly chocolate tasting grain, with a lemony almost tart charateristic,no doubt from the wheat,like others did not pick up on banana or clove ,which seemed unusual for this style. Still a fine summer brew

nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2008
Pours a watery plum color from the tap at the brewery. Plenty of malt and pepper in the aroma and flavor with a bit of grass and clove. Some banana would have been interesting but I didnt detect it.

RAYBOY01 (2011) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Brown pour with light wispy head. The typical wheat notes...grassy, cloves, bubblegum, pepper, etc, but also some of the darker flavors...chocolate, nuts, and smoke. Very solid beer.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2008
In short: a standard but superior Dunkel Weizen with a fruit salad bonus
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Almost clear amber with a small long lasting beige head.
In long: Less ripe bananas than a usually get in Dunkel Weizens, this one did have some ripe bananas but also a lot of fruit salad. As usual for the style, clove was present in the nose taste but at an acceptable low level. This is a very good beer. Medium body. Carbonation is very lively, this is a very lively Livery beer.

Tasted 4/27/08. 6oz samle from the brewpub. Hazy with a reddish hue. White ring of head. Trace perfumy nose. Caramel and grainy. Touch fruity esters. Tight effervescence. Toasty and estery. Lingering bitter finish. Lacing head. Good but not typical to the style.

heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 6, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. The body was dark copper with an off white head. The aroma was caramel with some light iced tea. The taste was iced tea along with some caramel. A decent brew.
